Bruce talk shocks Jerome
16 Nov 2007 - 16:47:33
Birmingham City striker Cameron Jerome has admitted he would be 'devastated' should manager Steve Bruce quit the club.
Bruce has been linked with the vacant managerial hot-seat at Wigan Athletic and Jerome, who was brought to St Andrew's by the former Manchester United defender in 2006, hopes he remains at the club.
Fellow Blues Liam Ridgewell and Gary McSheffrey have already backed their boss stating they would all be extremely saddened if he left the helm.
And now Jerome has revealed his shock at the possibility of Bruce leaving for Wigan.
Last month, Bruce was linked with the managerial vacancy at Bolton with his St Andrew's future still uncertain amid Hong Kong businessman Carson Yeung's protracted takeover of the club.
"Steve Bruce has got a brilliant squad together, he's brought in great flair players like Olivier Kapo and Daniel de Ridder," he said.
"The news that the manager seems likely to be going is devastating for all of us. The lads are all shocked.
"We thought it was all going okay with the takeover and the gaffer was going to be staying definitely."
